INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION WEEK - 2016

November 14-18, 2016

International Education Week (IEW) is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.

The entire Endicott College community is encouraged to participate in IEW.  If you, your department, or student club would like to organize and event for IEW, please contact Chris Moca (cmoca@endicott.edu; +1.978.232.2270)
